4.XRP suddenly spiked 35% in 45 minutes after a massive correction
The XRP price increased by 35% within 45 minutes subsequent to a large correction after Coinbase suspended XRP trading. The main catalyst behind the sudden spike in the XRP price seems to be a short squeeze. According to data from Bybt.com, $96 million worth of XRP futures contracts were liquidated in the last 12 hours.
5.Litecoin Flips XRP to take the 4th Spot
XRP’s crashing price has already cost it the long-held third-position by market cap to Tether and today Litecoin flipped it to take the fourth spot as well. The SEC is known to come hard on platforms that do not adhere to the regulations in place and thus no one wants to take the risk of inviting SEC’s wrath by offering XRP trading services.
